To Remove Trojans, two things can be very helpful.

#1 - Create a Local Account that is only a "User" and not an admin.

(Net User Create Bob /add)..........from the command prompt.

#2 - Boot in Safe Mode as "Bob" and try to run your Virust cleaning software.

The "User" account with its limited rights will help prevent the virus from moving/stealthing about in most cases.

Safe Mode can also limit some of that.

If your AV software does not operate in safe mode, try just as "Bob".

That file is located in system restore. Just disable system restore, run your virus scan and if it's gone, turn system restore back on.

Your going to need some good virus removal software, some patience, and might end up having to install windows again.. sorry.

also, on the slim chance that this virus relies on or affects either the boot sector or the master boot record, you can rewrite both by rebooting with your xp install cd in and starting a reinstall. shortly into the install process you will be asked if you want to launch the recovery console. this is NOT the same as pressing F2 and starting the Automated Recovery Console, this is a little later in the install, but not too far in. you will get a screen and unlimited time to choose the option, so no worries. just type "help" when the command prompt comes up and you'll see options to rewrite the MBR and/or boot sector. slim chance this will work, but it's worth a try before you do a full wipe. also note that this will disable your ability to boot into an alternate OS if you're on a dual boot system. you can reinstall the boot loader or reconfigure the windows boot parameters later though, so not all would be lost. good luck and keep us posted.
